School-Based Telehealth

What is School-based Telehealth?

School-based telehealth provides access to high-quality healthcare in the school setting, bringing care directly to students. With the assistance of the school nurse, a provider will provide care for the student via telehealth. This collaborative model helps students and parents avoid missed school and work to travel elsewhere to an appointment. 

Please note that services vary by school to include acute care, point of care testing, chronic disease management, mental health, and group health education, etc. Contact your child's school nurse to schedule an appointment and learn more about what services are offered.
